Definition for: Pull-off

Switching from a higher note to a lower one on the same string without re-picking it. The note changes as the finger on the higher fret is taken away, leaving one on a lower fret. This change occurs because as the higher fret is released the string gains some vibrating length, and this causes the pitch to drop.
